Yeah, this’ll fix everything.
The NFL is considering not inviting players who are academically ineligible in college to the scouting combine, a league source told CBSSports.com.
The move is being discussed because of the increased scrutiny on the maturity and commitment of the prospects entering the NFL, the source said, adding that if this measure was in place in 2013, a sizable group of players would not have been invited to Indianapolis for the combine.
But they still would have been eligible for the draft. And, presumably, for private workouts for whatever teams wanted to see them beforehand. Which makes it little more than some ineffective ass covering when the NFL gets asked about the next Hernandez.
Honestly, this sounds like something Mark Emmert would dream up. Is stupidity contagious?
